    looks like an awful lot of volume 15 sets for chest 15 for shoulders ect, i may be reading it wrong tho. i only do 7/8 sets for chest but if higher volume works for you. you can only try it.

    Volume overall looks a little high.

    Way too much pushing vs pulling.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Are you meaning to do the workouts in that specific order? If so then I would switch up day 1 because I wouldn't want to do squats that far down the line. On days I do squats I usually warm up and do them first so I can put forth more effort on them. Just my $.02.
